Vodka Grape Crush

Vodka Grape Crush at chasingdelicious.com. Recipe by @chasedelicious.

R Bright, Crisp & Flavorful. Summertime cocktails don’t have to be boring. And they don’t have to be tropical. Reach for a classic cocktail with a modern twist like this delicious vodka grape crush. Here grapes add a sweet and tart twist to a typically-berry-filled cocktail. Mix and match your own fruits for a cocktail all your own.

 

It’s the Fourth of July, and that means you’re likely outside grilling up some burgers, and sipping on a cocktail. Instead of presenting a cloy red, white, or blue cocktail, I’m going to share with you one of my favorite summer classics. Crushes are a great way to infuse a cocktail with your favorite flavors. They also make for a great, rustic presentation. Here, the mixture of sweet and tart grapes plays wonderfully with this sweet, bubbly cocktail.

 

Throw a few sliced grapes in the bottom of a glass with some simple syrup, mash, and then pour in the rest, giving it a stir once or twice, and you’ve got yourself the perfect summer cocktail – and the cocktail I will be sipping on as I grill up some haute dogs.

 

Of course, a drink like this wouldn’t be possible without a delicious vodka. Since it’s a grape cocktail, it only makes sense to reach for the Ciroc – which just happens to be my favorite vodka anyways. Looking for a bottle or two? Get your Ciroc Vodka from Alexander and James

    I want to start a fashion/lifestyle blog. I love photography, yet I want to upgrade my camera to a more professional one. I also wanted to start this blog, so which camera would you recommend me. I have a small spending budget, so if you may find something that is definitely not too pricey, I might appreciate it. Thanks a ton!.
